An Inspiring Story of All Times

PS: I wrote this post 4 years ago when this blog had not many followers/readers. Don’t know whether you have read this before. If yes, thank you so much and Jazakallah Khayr. If not, please read and share, InshaaAllah. And btw, this is one of my best write-ups, alhamdulillah,  and I am glad to say this. Baarakallaahu Feekum. 

‘Then He will not neglect us’.

Can you recall which blessed Muslim woman in history said this uniquely inspiring statement? If your answer was Hajar, then you guessed it right!

Do you know the background in which this exceptionally bold lady uttered this revolutionary statement – a statement which I feel has assumed the shape of a dew drop that is permanently embedded in the cheek of time! Continue reading

Be of the ‘few’, not of the ‘most’!

Found this interesting, so thought of sharing it…..

When Umar ibn al-Khattab radi allahu `anhu (may Allah be pleased with him) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating, “O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!”. اللهم اجعلني من عبادك القليل

Why Ya’juuj and Ma’juuj are Still a Mystery?

The story of Ya’juuj and Ma’juuj (Gog and Magog) in Surah al Kahf is not only interesting but it also has many lessons for us.

Many Muslims read Surah al Kahf on Fridays, and blessed are those who try to understand and ponder over its teachings.

“Alhamdulillah” – A Linguistic Miracle of the Qur’an

Writing about the literary dimension of the Qur’an for an audience that may or may not have background in Arabic grammar and rhetoric can be rather challenging. I’m going to attempt to navigate around technical lingo as much as possible. Building a basic familiarity with the subject is my goal, not presenting it in a sophisticated fashion.

The words  الحمد لله AlHamdu Lillah are most commonly uttered from Muslim lips around the world. After the basmalah (the tag name used for BISMILLAHI ALRAHMANI ALRAHEEMI),  it is the first statement mentioned in the opening Surah, al-Fatiha. One way to explore the beauty, precision , and thought provoking eloquence of the Qur’an’s words is to explore the very choice of each word. Arabic is a rich language full of terms similar in meaning. Continue reading
